At least 12 leaders, including President of Ukraine Poroshenko, will attend the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II on May 7 in Gdansk.

"It is known that along with President Bronislaw Komorowski and government officials, all presidents of Central and Eastern Europe will come to Westerplatte (peninsula in Gdansk, considered the symbol of the war – Ed.) on May 7: Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, and Ukraine, which is very important in the current situation in Europe," the tvn24 channel informs.

Also, French President Francois Hollande and a member of the British royal family consider the possibility of coming.

On this day, the politicians and world-renowned historians will participate in a discussion on the consequences of World War II in Europe and the world. There will speak the famous Polish politician, former prisoner of Auschwitz Władysław Bartoszewski and British historian Norman Davies, Tyzhden informs.

The main celebration will take place at Westerplatte at midnight on May 7-8, when Nazi Germany invaded Poland.

It should be recalled that according to a well-known political commentator Oleh Ponomar, President Putin will meet his doom in company of African cannibals, since most of the European leaders rejected his invitation to attend the parade.
